Juvederm Q & A

What is Juvéderm?

Juvéderm is a collection of dermal fillers Dr. Tiwary offers at WestBay Dental to reduce the signs of aging and enhance your natural beauty. These dermal fillers contain a gel-like substance called hyaluronic acid, which is a natural component of your skin’s connective tissue. When injected into specific areas of your skin, the fillers add volume to help smooth out lines and creases and enhance your facial contours.

Am I a good candidate for Juvéderm?

Dr. Tiwary received specialized training to offer Juvéderm injections and can determine if the dermal fillers make a good choice for you during your aesthetic consultation. The leading brand of fillers includes formulas that address many common beauty concerns, such as:

  • Facial wrinkles and folds
  • Thin lips
  • Sagging cheeks

If you have concerns about the visible effects of aging and you’re seeking a nonsurgical solution that provides immediate results, then Juvéderm may be the solution for you. 

What can I expect during Juvéderm injections?

Dr. Tiwary performs your Juvéderm injections at the office. Before she begins, she first designs your aesthetic plan, which includes the type of dermal filler you need and the exact placement of the injections so you get the results you want. 

She then carefully and expertly injects the filler as outlined, massaging the gel into place as she goes. The Juvéderm line of dermal fillers contains lidocaine, which is a local anesthetic that helps minimize your discomfort during the injection. If you’re sensitive to pain, be sure to let Dr. Tiwary know before she gets started so she can adjust your treatment plan.

You should notice an immediate improvement in your look after your injections. Downtime isn’t usually needed afterward. However, Dr. Tiwary may suggest you refrain from strenuous exercise for the rest of the day. 

How long does Juvéderm last?

Your Juvéderm injections can keep you looking young and fresh for up to a year. To prolong the effects, Dr. Tiwary recommends you use sunblock daily and cover up with a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses if you’re out in the sun for any prolonged length of time.

In addition to dermal fillers, Dr. Tiwary offers Botox® injections, which are used to smooth out forehead lines, frown lines, and crow’s feet. Depending on your beauty goals, she may suggest combining your Juvéderm injections with Botox.
